Mather AuditoriumThis event is handicap accessible
Join Ivy Frignoca, Casco Baykeeper, to learn about the changes Friends of Casco Bay is observing and monitoring in Casco Bay. Topics covered include microplastics sampling, changing water chemistry related to climate change and ocean acidification, and impacts of stormwater and nitrogen pollution like outbreaks of nuisance algal blooms and unhealthy eelgrass beds. Ivy will also discuss ways we can eliminate or reduce the causes of these problems.
As Casco Baykeeper, Ivy Frignoca is the chief advocate for Casco Bay. In speaking passionately on behalf of the Bay, she is able to draw on her experiences as an environmental educator, an advocate for Vermont’s public lands and Lake Champlain, and most recently, as a Senior Attorney with Conservation Law Foundation. Her previous work on oceans, clean water, and clean air issues throughout New England provide her with in-depth knowledge of the issues she continues to confront, including ocean acidification, nitrogen pollution, and reducing wastewater discharges and stormwater runoff.
